Workshop Agenda

As a participant, you will learn and practice the following:

  • Identify and develop your own leadership profile. Learn to create leadership in others.
  • Examine personal practices of successful leaders in developing vision, resolving conflicts and setting priorities. Create a strategy for managing the relationships that are critical to your success.
  • Discover opportunities for growth in your organization and intervention methods that encourage collaboration and team cohesiveness. Learn how executive leaders create an organizational focus around the most important priorities.
  • Analyze what is different about practicing leadership in a political environment.
  • Develop a personal leadership action plan and an accountability system for addressing your most important challenges. Receive feedback to develop skills for managing yourself and others.

Upon completion of the workshop, you will develop and take home an implementation guide and action plan.

Workshop Methodology

The PURC Leadership Workshop will use the “field laboratory” method of examining participants’ own leadership challenges.

Most learning will take place in teams and will use personal cases and scenarios as teaching points.

Instructors will present brief “tool kit” sessions followed by intensive personal application exercises and team presentations.

The workshop was thought-provoking, and real-life applicable. I believe that those of us who attended enjoyed it and can be the catalyst to share the knowledge; it takes one, two, and so on for knowledge to mushroom.
